Need creative ideas..valentines

DS is too old for the valentines in the store, but I was going to put "some" type of candy, with a cute little saying (that kind of goes with the candy) for him to pass out. I saw a cute one on Pintrest, but I don't know if DS will think its "not cool" LOL. It was a valentine shaped like a fish bowl and said "I am glad we are in the same school" in a plastic bag with some goldfish (or you could do swedish fish)

So, anyone have any great ideas?

Does he have any thoughts on what he wants to bring in? At that age I would think he would want to come up with something that isn't too "cheesy".

If he doesn't care and told you to do whatever you want I did find these

or you could even just make some cupcakes that are red, white and pink or some kind of Valentines themed cookie.

I'd ask him if he was ok with that. It's a bit young IMO. Mine is 10 in 4th and he's just taking in some candy. Last year was the first year for my other son to not have parties. He said his class wasn't doing anything. I got some candy for him to take in just in case. Didn't write his name on it, no card, and he could leave it in his bag all day if he didn't want to give it to anyone. Turned out a lot of kids brought stuff and just passed it around to friends. He ended up giving out most of it. I plan to do the same this year.

Thanks, great ideas. I saw the goldfish idea on my friends FB, I am new to Pintrest...I didn't see those earlier. I haven't ask him yet, he probably won't let me do something cute. If not, we will just do candy.

I usually just send in some valentine themed cookies for the class to share. There are some really cute Mickey ones I'm making this year.

Around here, 5th is elementary school and they still do valentines exchanges. The least hokey ones are the candy ones. You can buy a box of fun dip candy with a space to write to and from. Most of the older kids do these kinds.

I have a 5th grade daughter, 8th grade son, and teach the higher elementary grades. I think the idea is adorable...for a younger boy. By 5th, most boys want to look like they put as little effort into it as possible, even if they spent 20 minutes at Target deciding which candy to get, lol.

If your ds is too old to go to the store to pick out generic valentines, then he is WAY to old to have mom send him in with cutsie ones - lol! You can pick out the least dorkie invitations you can find at the grocery store (the cheaper, the better), and have him bring them in. I think most still did valentines at this age.

Here, the class moms send in treats for the party.

I know he is too old I just think all the ideas on Pintrest are so cute, but in reality, he probably wouldn't let me make them. He won't even do character pics at WDW anymore. I guess I will just have to wait for grandbabies LOL (but not wishing for any...anytime soon)

If you still want to make something cute, go ahead and do it! Then donate them to a local hospital or nursing home to cheer up some folks who could use a happy thought! I get my "fix" of things like this through teaching and leading a girl scout troop, but there isn't any reason not to get creative on your own, too.

This is an awesome idea!
